Sadly, their contracts of the aughties are probably better then their contracts of the nineties.

Josh S. said...

We signed somebody!!!

Justin Miller?

OK then...

Jason said...

Isn't he the guy with a special rule where he always has to wear long sleeves due to his arm tattoos?

I see he's a Torrance native. He may want to check his contract for any pool visitation provisions.

KempKershaw said...

Jason- Yes.

And a former Giant, so you know Colletti was aroused by that.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We also get Prentice Redman!

Josh S. said...

Now we just need Method Man!

Eric Karros said...

NL West took 5 of the top 6 spots!

Greg said...

some of those were so garbage it's more like 6 of the top 5 spot. Darren Dreifort, you bastard you.

Eric Karros said...

Don't forget Darren Dreifort is an anagram for 'Drafted in Error'.

Dusty Baker said...

Sure is weird that the comments list doesnt' have Dusty Baker as more (inane) comments than others.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, Josh, that Method Man reference was just tha shit. I can go to bed now, satisfied.

Adam said...

I put Schmidt ahead of Drifort on tbis list. Every year you thought that this may be they year Darren stayed healthy. After Jason's first month with the Dodgers I never had that hope.

fanerman said...

Schmidt combined to pitch 50 innings in his 3 years here. Besides 2002, Dreifort pitched at least 50 innings every year from 1997 to 2004.

PavilionBum said...

I think Zito needs to be higher. & year deal plus DD and Schmidt were always hurt. Better not pitching than pitching the way Zito does.

Thank god we got Redman, now we can bench that loser Kemp.
